Just be careful with refurbs. They can be really hit or miss. You might get something great or one with a shit battery, hard drive or screen; which can all be relatively common hardware problems with laptops.
If you get a refurb make sure it has some kind of warranty because its not worth the money you save if you're paying to get it fixed.
